Silence is bliss, the Tinker Board 2 and 2S can be passively cooled to the max.

LONDON, ENGLAND, August 2022 — Akasa, a leading provider of passive cooling and thermal solutions for the global electronics industry, has released a new case for the ASUS Tinker Board 2: give a cool welcome to Akasa’s Skyline Pro! With the pure aluminium body and crenelated city skyline design, the case acts as a heatsink to passively cool the motherboard, leaving nothing but silence!

The ASUS Tinker Board 2 and 2S have been upgraded from its predecessor with almost twice the performance. The board is also able to display two monitors at 4K UHD resolution, perfect for digital signage or advertisement boards. The Tinker Board includes some major customisation options, such as the RTC battery header, a micro-SD card slot (Tinker Board 2S comes with 16GB of eMMC storage), and a two-pin fan connector, which allow for many different setups. The board also supports Android 10, which gives it an advantage over other small computer boards.

The ridged heat sink design for the Skyline Pro emulates a scenic city skyline and helps with the dissipation of heat from the case. The case comes with two solid aluminium cores and thermal pads to ensure an excellent contact with the hottest computer chips. With the included thermal paste, an ideal heat transfer is achieved, protecting the vital components and the motherboard from damage caused by excess heat.
The case comes with all the ports necessary for inputs and outputs to the Tinker Board 2.

On the motherboard, there are three USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A and one Type C connection, along with slots for ethernet, HDMI (up to two 4K monitors), and expandable memory (in the form of a micro-SD card). Accessories play an essential role in the customizability of the ASUS Tinker Board, and the Skyline Pro is designed for high functionality; the case comes with openings for a camera module, display module, antenna holes and GPIO wiring.
